As an art lover, entrepreneur and mother of two, I’m a firm believer that life is what you make it. At a place in my life where I was in transition from a divorce and beginning a new life as a single mom, I made the decision to live boldly as a watercolor painter and illustrator. I followed my passions and dove into what made me truly happy – creating beautiful artwork. From here my creative expression began to blossom and continues to teach me more and more about myself through my process and painting.
